Please send mail to the users@subversion.tigris.org mailing list as
sometimes (like this time) I'm too busy to respond and someone else might
be able to help you.

On RHEL3/WBEL3 Subversion requires the latest versions of BDB (4.2.52),
Apache (at least 2.0.48), APR/APR-UTIL (unreleased 0.9.5), neon, and such.

Since RHEL3/WBEL3 doesn't come with those versions then you need to
install them from my RPMs. Unfortunately, there are some conflicts with
existing packages, so you can't just do a "rpm -i *.rpm" on my stuff. You
need to upgrade some packages and install others (so you don't wipe out
existing capability (BDB, for example) and check carefully whether you can
update your Apache without causing problems, there are lots of
dependencies.

You could also build directly from Subversion in the
packages/rpm/whitebox-el-3 directory by just typing "make" assuming all
the other required devel packages are installed. That's basically all I
do when generating a new RPM for distribution.

However, I've now put the source RPMs in the 1.0.6/whitebox-el-3/src
directory.

Hopefully the above does that.
